Back and Neck Pain FAQ’s in Omaha

Our Omaha chiropractor at Kosak Chiropractic & Acupuncture encounters many patients each day who are suffering from upper and low back pain and neck pain. This can be due to an injury in a car accident or a sporting event or arise due to degenerative conditions or poor posture. Here are some common questions Dr. Kosak hears from patients.

1. What are the most typical causes of back and neck pain?

Spinal misalignments can cause back and neck pain. However, neck pain can be sourced by overusing mobile devices, repetitious head motions, whiplash, or sleeping in a bad position or upon an un-ergonomic pillow. Patients with back pain often suffer from herniated discs, subluxations and vertebral misalignments that pinch nerves and cause discomfort and limit mobility. These injuries often occur from heavy lifting, slipping and falling or sudden twisting.

2. Why should I see a chiropractor in Omaha for back and neck pain?

Chiropractors have attending school for several years to receive the proper training to treat conditions of the human body. They understand how each part of the spine plays a vital role in the body’s functioning and overall levels of health. Our chiropractor in Omaha offers natural, non-invasive solutions to help patients in Omaha, NE get pain relief without surgery or medications.

3. How do you diagnose neck and back conditions?

Our Omaha chiropractor will conduct an initial consultation and perform a few tests to accurately diagnose the source of your pain. Testing includes a physical exam, x-rays and any other diagnostics that may be necessary to determine the best course of treatment, such as a chiropractic adjustment.

4. How do you treat neck and back pain?

We use chiropractic adjustments, acupuncture, electrical muscle stimulation, corrective exercises, physiotherapy techniques and intersegmental traction to treat body pain and promote faster healing.

5. Are back and neck injuries preventable?

In cases of accidents, there’s no way to avoid pain from injuries. However, you can take precautions by avoiding heavy lifting, practicing good posture and wearing safety equipment when engaging in risky activities.
